Prophetic Traditions in Islam – On the Authority of the Family of the Prophet
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

Prophetic Traditions in Islam – On the Authority of the Family of the Prophet contains a wealth of wisdom, knowledge and inspiration for all who seek to know more about Islam and about the process of refining one’s character and conduct. It presents a comprehensive selection of Islamic teachings arranged according to topics that deal with belief and worship as well as the moral, social and spiritual values which Islam upholds. Key verses of the Holy Qur`an introduce the issues addressed, which are then elaborated upon by selected sayings of the Prophet and the Imams of the Ahl al-Bayt (‘The People of the [Prophet’s] Household’).

“From [this book] one can learn a great deal about the Islamic conception of God and prophecy, of worship and virtue, of the character of the Shi‘ite Imams and even of early Islamic history. Furthermore, one can also learn much about the human state, its origin and end, and the meaning of terrestrial existence and our role here on earth. The book therefore addresses itself not only to the lovers of the Ahl al-Bayt and all Muslims, but in fact to all human beings, whatever their background may be, as long as they are attracted to the world of the Spirit and are in quest of meaning in their transient lives here on earth”.– from the Foreword by Seyyed Hossein Nasr.

The Sayings & Wisdom of Imam 'Ali
Collected by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

Imam 'Ali, who was a cousin of the Prophet Muhammad, was the first man to accept Islam, when he was still a young boy, and for the next twenty-three years he was one of the Prophet's closest companions. Imam 'Ali was constantly at the side of the Prophet, learnt from him, and also married his daughter Fatima. The Prophet said of Imam 'Ali: 'I am the city of knowledge, and 'Ali is the gate.'

Although a great many of Imam 'Ali's sayings and letters were accurately remembered and recorded during his lifetime, they have until now remained virtually inaccessible to the English-speaking world. The Sayings and Wisdom of Imam 'Ali is a selection of this great man's recorded sayings--gathered together from authentic and reliable sources and arranged in easily accessible sections in Arabic by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri. These have been carefully translated into modern English, a great effort having been made to remain true to the intended meaning of the original Arabic text.

Imam 'Ali possessed not only a profound understanding of the nature of existence, but also a deep and penetrating insight into the changeless condition of human nature. The clarity and relevance of Imam 'Ali's words remain, therefore, as true today as when he first uttered them.

The sayings and wisdom of Imam 'Ali transcend superficial differences, to reveal everlasting truths that can only serve to guide and illuminate the seeker and the traveler on his or her journey through life, as clearly, constantly, and unerringly as the Pole Star.
